Darin Gantt brings up the idea of Ken Whisenhunt to the Panthers

69 posts in this topic

No. Darin Gannt is an imbecile.

don't shoot the messenger, I think Ken could be an upgrade too, his biggest problem is that he's not had a QB, and we have one.

also fwiw Darin Gantt while I do not always agree with him is still the best Panthers Beat writer we've ever had.

I'm all for getting rid of Ron as long as we hire a clear upgrade. Wisenhunt and Lovie don't fit that bill.

I definately agree with getting rid of Rivera ONLY as long as the replacement is a clear upgrade. This is one reason why I prefer him over a cooridinator or college coach.

My biggest fear no matter what though is another horrible start to next season and we are back to having questions at HC, regardless who has the job next year.

Doubt it would be up to Rivera.

If Jerry doesn't fire Rivera, I doubt he's gonna force staff changes on him.

Head coaches just about always have final say on their staff.

Couldn't agree with this more.

Especially the part about Gantt. He may sometimes be sarcastic, he might sometimes be a jerk, but he is infinitely more awesome than that tool Joe Person, and he he was also responsible for getting us more national attention on PFT, like it or not.

And back to Whis, you're right. His one problem is that he couldn't get the right QB. But, dozens of coaches could say that. It's not like QBs grow on trees.

Magnus mentioned Newton and Shula might nrt have the greatest relationship (no real confirmation, just stuff he's heard)

Chris Weinke for QB coach!

True, but the new GM is also going to want his teams identity to look the way he wants it. If the new GM doesn't want coryell, then it's not going to be coryell.

Doubt Rivera fires Chud if he stays.

Norv as QB Coach would work.

Chud was the biggest reason why we fell back this season. He's a goner.

Norv is not going to take a QB coach move.

Going WCO with Newton as QB would be a mistake.

His skill set doesn't fit that approach at all.

Absolutely agree, but it's not like the WCO and the coryell are the only two offenses in the NFL.

I, personally, would like to see Cam in an offense very similar to the Texans' offense. Zone, stretch runs, naked bootlegs by Cam, 20 yd passes to the TE over the middle, etc. Being able to get Cam into open space, while having targets in the short yardage, the middle zone, and deep, would be great.

He's been a QB coach before.

Plus coming here would allow him to work with both his son and an old friend (Rivera)
